We think it's one of the most original, rewarding, and fun things to do in Melbourne!



Knowledge required
This class is perfect for all levels; from those who have never collaged (or been creative in a while) to those who have dabbled, & to those who are already obsessed!

We have experience hosting from 10+ years plus in this workshop and require a guardian to accompany any children or young people under the age of 16.
 
What you'll get
An introduction to collage and the various styles and techniques to get you inspired and give you ideas before getting started.

A four-part process to guide you through your creative experience, from ‘mining’ for images, cutting, arranging, and finally image capturing (glueing/scanning). You’ll also have plenty of one-on-one time with Max, for idea generation, advice and collaboration.

A huge array of vintage books, contemporary magazines, and paper ephemera to cut from and access to our book wall for those extra special pieces! All tools are provided and you’re also welcome to bring along any extra bits and pieces from home that you’d like to use.

A spread of light refreshments and snacks from local stores and cafes to keep you going throughout the creative process, including:
  • Friday Evenings: Pick and nibble on a delicious Cheeseboard spread with equally delicious Vegan and Gluten-Free options from local cheese shop, Harper and Blohm, to go perfectly with your BYO beverages.
  • Saturday and Sundays: Relax and enjoy a nice cup of tea, filter coffee, or kombucha, whilst tucking into some tasty Ovens Street pastries, fresh fruit, and Vegan/Gluten-Free chocolate snacks.
  • Tuesday Evenings: Green Acre pizza from our local pizzeria, with many delicious vegan options available and gluten-free bases too and BYO with fridge and glasses provided.

Your very own original artwork (or two, or three, or more!)

Digital scans of your favourite creations sent to your email.

A take-home bag of your leftover paper pieces and scraps to continue the fun at home.
What to bring
  • Good vibes and creative enthusiasm, we'll take care of the rest.
  • You're also welcome to BYO drinks.

Fabulous workshop, highly recommended! Inspiring, ecclectic and organised environment with all the tools you need to create some really interesting pieces, supported by a very detailed and structured workshop with lots of guidance and lots of freedom. Feels like you're hanging out with friends at home :) As if it couldn't get any better and then you add a very sweet natured dog to cuddle and the best pizza in town! (and i'm talking about the gluten free vegan pizza!) Most of the people i workshopped with were return customers so that's saying something. Great way to spend any evening and get the juices flowing!

Renee Poon May 2022


Really enjoyed this workshop, accessible to all skill levels but also quite challenging in the kind of way that makes you feel good once you’ve completed something. The hosts were amazing in their guidance & assistance, both very warm & genuine. The work space was beautifully set up (10/10 for ambiance!) with enough space to really spread out, tea to sip whilst making & seriously yummy pizza. Was just the inspiration I needed to get myself playing more. Thanks TPJ

Sare Yilmaz May 2022


The venue was amazing, vibe is awesome in there! Max and Zoe were so lovely and helpful and made me feel comfortable immediately. All the materials provided are so great and the instruction is flawless.

Jessica Hutchison May 2022


Had a fantastic time! It’s great to have Max and Zoe’s expert advice on call, but to also have the freedom to go nuts with paper. I honestly wish I’d booked another session so I could keep going - 3hrs flew by!

Ella Marcus May 2022


The workshop was so fun! It was great to try something creative that I had never done before :)

Katherine Kiley May 2022


Such a lovely afternoon in a vibrant space - the hosts were delightful and engaging and really know their stuff! They make every effort to make you feel at home and inspired to create. It’s always a pleasure to meet people who are really keen to share their skills and passions and to create a real sense of community.

Zoe and Max, you have created something really special here. I throughly enjoyed myself and was enthralled in the process - three hours went by in a flash! Thank you for your warmth, it wasn’t nearly as scary turning up by myself as I thought perhaps it might have been. You will see me again soon

Georgia Wilkinson May 2022


Thanks Max and Zoe for such a lovely, fun and creative workshop! This is great for anyone, regardless of their previous artistic experiences.

Clarissa McCreadie May 2022


Lots of fun, reignited my love for making art with my hands. Atmosphere was great, Zoe and Max were lovely! Had such a good time

Jennifer Walker May 2022


I LOVED this workshop! I feel like it was the perfect start for someone who feels creative but doesn't feel like they have any artistic skill to start to develop a voice and style. The workshop was gentle, had a warm welcoming and not intimidating vibe, amazing materials to use and was facilitated by artists who really knew their stuff and wanted to nudge you towards pushing your own limits. It was such a comfortable and gentle way to build artistic confidence and was just a load of fun. And no matter your skill level, you will leave this workshop with completed artworks of your own that you will be proud of. Can't recommend enough!

Karen Axford May 2022


Loved the workshop. Max and Zoe were supportive but also challenged us. I was trying to get in touch with some creativity again and the workshop was a great first step.

Carla McCall-Tan May 2022


I did the class with my neighbour and my 11 year old daughter and we all enjoyed it so much! Zoe and Max are super friendly and helpful, and we were so engrossed in our art works the 3 hrs flew by. A lovely afternoon!

Kerrie Bayliss May 2022


This venue is perfect for the collage activity. Everything you need is supplied plus wonderful creative guidance is provided. I was astonishing at how well everyone’s work looked when scanned onto the computer. I am looking forward to printing off my creations.

Jade Hart May 2022


Amazing class… a super chilled afternoon class which enabled the group to learn and explore collage!

Elly Bonanno May 2022


Absolutely LOVED the class. I attended with my 10 year old daughter who also had a great time. Max and Zoe are passionate and keen to share their knowledge and processes in a really digestible and fun way. The venue and space is really well organised with fantastic materials and inspiring ideas. Frankie the dog is a wonderful host. We had a beautiful time and will spread the word (but not too much because we want to be able to get into another workshop!).

Nicole Burnard May 2022


Zoe and Max host a fantastic evening of collage in a cosy, vibrant space where everyone feels at home. They guide you gently through the process and offer encouragement and suggestions along the way. Before you know it, three hours has disappeared and you've created something unique, as have Zoe and Max. Five stars!

Fab class, loved it! Great way to de-stress and start the weekend. Will be recommending to family and friends.

Teachers were fantastic, friendly but not in your face. Helpful with collage artwork, really knew their stuff! We were all surprised at how artistic we were in different ways.

Dorothy Bartholomew May 2022

Celine Del-Re May 2022


Like a cosy cup of tea & a book, That Paper Joint was such a wholesome experience! Zoe & Max bring such warmth and expertise to the workshop, making it such an accessible experience for those of us who doubt our creative juices on the regular. One of my favourite mornings - already planning my next trip back!

Fun space with friendly people who know how to put on a good collage workshop! ✨

Anna Hickey Apr 2022


I attended a collage workshop at That Paper Joint with my two friends and we had an excellent time. The shop/studio is a gorgeous, colourful and inspiring environment and Max and Zoe make you feel so welcome. The 3 hour workshop absolutely flew by and I am so happy with the collages I was able to create in that time. Consider my craft bucket full! Until next time

Liz Scarfe Apr 2022


Before attending I thought the price was a little high but after attending, it was definitely value for money. The space is gorgeous and thoughtfully laid out. The creative process was broken down into simple steps which were skillfully facilitated. The materials were great and the hosts generous, relatable, and skilled. I haven't collaged since primary school and I had a total ball and made pieces I loved - thank you Get onto it Melbourne!

Elvira Earthstar Apr 2022


I just adore this place. Each session is full of of potential, surprises and laughter. I’m not very talented with art in general but came up with some really fun pieces. It’s really accessible and Max and Zoe are so warm and friendly. Great vibes, highly recommended.

Erin Puccinelli Apr 2022


Super fun place to hang out with a pal, date night or inspire you out or a creative rut. Love the interior decoration. Zoe and Max are fun and made us feel at ease. Also heaps of vegan options for the cheeseboard which was awesome. Definitely worth the money to do something a bit different.

Maia Martucci Apr 2022


Had a wonderful experience at the paper joint. The workshop was well structured, an abundance of materials were provided and Max and Zoe had a wealth of knowledge about collage. Already wanting to go do it again.

Sandy Dubs Apr 2022


Very well organised space to create. Hosts are charming & inspiring.
I enjoyed my first foray into collage & learnt a lot about various processes from Max as well as the other partipants. Zoe is very hospitable and I enjoyed the generous snacks & beverages (inclusive of gluten-free vegans )
I’d love to do this again now that I understand a little more about the wonderful world of collage.

Georgia Trousdale Apr 2022


My friends and I had a wonderful time at the Collage Workshop and are already talking about going back I haven't shut up about the workshop since we went - I was particularly blown away by the teaching and structure of the class. The way the workshop was broken down into chapters stopped us from getting stuck and encouraged us to experiment with different techniques. Fantastic teachers - encouraging and enthusiastic - I would love to bring my students here. The venue was also amazing - inspiring set up with incredible artworks and materials to use. Can't wait to go back :)

Gina Macauley Apr 2022


I loved my time at The Paper Joint. The venue was great and welcoming, the teachers were fantastic, knowledgeable, supportive and attentive. And I felt really good about the pieces I created. I would highly recommend.
Thank for the great afternoon.

Paul Castro Apr 2022


This is a great activity for those who are interested in collage as a form of expression or simply want to be creative for a couple of hours!
The set up is great, very cosy place but spacious enough to get creative!
Everything is provided, including magazines, old books, glue and… scanning!
As a collage aficionado, I felt I learned a lot. Max is very generous with his knowledge and tips.
Although the session is very well structured, I felt I ran out of time I could’ve spent hours and hours there!
Highly recommended! Great to do it in a group too!

Ella Jean Apr 2022


This workshop was the perfect mix of friendly and focussed; exactly what I was after in the slow and steady post-lockdown social recovery phase. The session itself had enough structure that you didn't just get lost but not so much that the actual experience got crowded with "content".

TPJ is a gorgeous space with great humans - looking forward to seeing it all evolve!

That Paper Joint is every bit as incredible as it’s friendly, creative owners, Max & Zoe!

We had an amazing time visiting that paper joint!
Max and Zoe(and Franky) were so welcoming and helpful and they have created such a vibe in the studio there.

I feel like I’ve taken solid knowledge and ideas away with me and I’m so excited to collage more

Lana Logam Apr 2022


We had so much fun! It was such a beautiful and lovely evening. Zoe and Max are really passionate and engaging facilitators. It felt like we were welcomed into a friend’s really cool house for a fun night with yum yum snacks. We were totally lost in the zone of the craft and didn’t want to leave! Thank you for hosting us. We’ll be back x

Bibi Bello Apr 2022


Teachers were amazing ! The studios had such an art school meets Pop-culture vibe which created a super fun atmosphere. Matt and Zoey were thorough in there instructions and kept us on time for the workshop. I liked how they encouraged us to find our own way creatively while also just having a good chat :) Pastries and coffees are not to be missed .

David Leon Apr 2022


I absolutely loved the experience! The incredible space, together with Max and Zoe’s hospitality makes the activity really enjoyable and grounding.

For me it was more than just the collage workshop… it was connecting with other people, with myself, relaxing and connecting with my creative side.

We could definitely use more spaces like this!

I’ll 100% do it again and will recommend it to all my friends.

Thank you, Max and Zoe.

This was literally the most amazing class I’ve ever done. The hosts Max and Zoe were so lovely and intuitive and have created a space that is truly unique and beautiful. I couldn’t recommend this enough!

Jude Mitchell Mar 2022


I had a great time. The space is beautiful and the way Max lead us in picking our collage materials was really fun and introduced a random element. The class had a few small groups of friends that combined into a really friendly atmosphere. I would definitely go again :D

Melek Aktepe Mar 2022


Talk about a night out where it feels like a night in. Walking into That Paper Joint felt like walking into the world of Narnia. A place with endless opportunities and a room for your creativity to flourish.

Lindsey Moyse Mar 2022


I took my 11 year old as a birthday present to this workshop and we both had a ball! It was a beautiful way to spend some time together, being creative and learning about collage as an art form. Max and Zoe are wonderful, friendly and inclusive hosts. My kid asked me about coming back before we had even finished :)

Sarah Hollingsworth Mar 2022


Max and Zoe have created such a unique space and experience at That Paper Joint. The class was so fun and creative, everyone was encouraged to explore collaging in their own style while being supported to figure out what worked best for them and to learn different techniques. We had an excellent time and will definitely be recommending this to lots of friends!

Laurel Frank Mar 2022


Lots of varied source material were provided and the teachers were very responsive to all our work, providing suggestions and guidance about how to achieve our aims. A very absorbing 3 hours in a lovely communal workroom.

Mia Kyritsis Mar 2022


Such an amazing experience! Wholesome vibes and Max and Zoe were so sweet and gave some fab tips/tricks! So excited to go back for another collage session very soon!

Kate Driscoll Mar 2022


Serotonin hit of goodness. Amazing instructors, beautiful interior, yummy snacks and you may also get to meet Frankie, aka OG puppy dog.

Rita Pullicino Mar 2022


Max and Zoe were amazing teachers. Their calm way of explaining and teaching the course was excellent.

The studio was a pleasure to create in. Lots of table room to spread out and I love they furnished and decorated the space. You will find gorgeous pieces of art designed by Max and Zoe, plus also some other fantastic collage artists.
If materials were provided, did you like them?

You are provided with quite a lot of materials to create your pieces. You definitely do not need to bring a single thing with you.

I learned how to think outside of the box when it comes to collaging. I learned new techniques I would not have thought of, if it weren't for Max and Zoe's extensive knowledge and expertise.

Absolutely value for money and I will be back to do another session!

Thank you Max and Zoe (and little Frankie).

Susannah Thomson Mar 2022


My daughter and I had so much fun at the class. Having never done any collage before we weren’t sure what to expect. Max and Zoe were so welcoming and explained everything really clearly. The time flew by as we browsed the vast range of old books, snipped and arranged and scanned our collages. Max and Zoe were on hand to help and share their knowledge. If you’re looking for a class that’s unique, sustainable, suitable for all levels of creative skills, with the loveliest of hosts book a session at That Paper Joint. You won’t be disappointed.
Extra bonus - very cute resident dog Frankie who was happy to receive pats :)

Imogen Salzman-Bye Mar 2022


Max and Zoe were fantastic teachers and hosts. The ambiance of the space is lovely and contains a wealth of materials and inspiration for the collages you will create. The hours flew by. I highly recommend this class.

Patty Holten Mar 2022


Wow! That was just so much fun. Max & Zoe were a delight - patient, friendly, hospitable (loved the donuts) and knowledgeable. The workshop was really well structured, moving at exactly the right pace and held within a beautiful space.
It really was the perfect combination of learning, relaxing and creating.
We will be back!

Rochelle Ornsby Mar 2022


Had a great time at the cut and paste collage workshop today. The teachers are friendly, informative, encouraging and helpful. The place has a great vibe and it was so fun and relaxing to sit and create for a few hours, while chatting and having some refreshments and morning tea. If your looking for something creative and a little bit different then I highly recommend!

Elvira Earthstar Mar 2022


Entertaining, joyful, accessible. Easy to get started and loads of inspiration. The art that arose was so varied, I loved seeing the range of images created. Left the night with a new skill I can easily continue on with at home.

Really friendly group leaders, and the grazing platter was tasty as.

Bianca Canturi Mar 2022


The workshop was great! Had so much fun cutting, pasting and collaging. Zoe and Max were so lovely and welcoming, and Max is so full of knowledge and provides great guidance and assistance during the workshop. The studio is such a cool vibe and really brought inspiration and sparked creativity. They also have the CUTEST dog! It is also a really great social event where you can come solo or in a group. My session was on Pizza Tuesday and I defientley reccommend coming to this session.

Kim Teh Mar 2022


A wonderful experience. Max and Zoe are welcoming, and have created a sanctuary to lose yourself in creativity and learning something new in a fun and relaxed environment. They offer a wealth of materials and plenty of arty advice and assistance if you would like it. Highly recommend!

I would 10000% recommend to EVERYONE to get on board and give this class a go.
Max and Zoe have created a safe and welcoming space for you to explore and discover your creative self. Everything moves at a comfortable pace, the explanations, the examples and the speed in which you are let loose to go for it. Stop thinking about taking part and take part. You will be happy that you did.

Mikaela Vlasveld Mar 2022


Max and Zoe are fabulous. Fun, energetic and full of ideas - the quickest 3 hours ever! I will definitely be back

Madisyn Eustace Mar 2022

What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon! Skillfully guided through every step by the hosts, but also encouraged to follow our own creative paths. Everyone in the class produced such varied and interesting pieces. And the donuts were delicious

Brooke Wolsley Mar 2022


I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop, facilitators and the space! They have an amazing amount of materials and presented a range of techniques that we could experiment with. Being able to take home hard copies plus scan our work and have digital copies was great! The snacks were yum and the time went really quickly! I would recommend to beginners and practicing artists as you have a lot of freedom to follow your own ideas and access to a huge range of imagery.

Laurie Gibens Mar 2022


really fun well thought out class in very cool place. loved it! came home inspired and with some art of my own

Manon Riele Mar 2022


Absolutely loved the class. Max and Zoe have so much passion and love for collage that was portrayed to us. We created some great art with lovely calm and constructive guidance.
The space is clean, organised and welcoming. It was a lovely reprieve from the outside world in their space.
I will definitely be back!

Alex Kalaitzidis Mar 2022


Max is a passionate and informative instructor. His enthusiasm is infectious. Zoe is a wonderful support and a great host. The studio is absolutely stunning: clean, organised, colourful, intimate and looks really cool. We had access to well stocked supplies and interesting ideas. We had such fun and found the experience very therapeutic. The scanned images of our work were most impressive.

Paper Craft and Ink workshop review by Alex Kalaitzidis

Mitch Goodall Mar 2022


This was honestly one of the best experiences I’ve had. I was blown away by Max and Zoe’s studio. It was so warm and inviting and really got you in the mood to challenge yourself creatively. Max shared incredible insights into his craft and took the time to pass on his knowledge so that the whole group could produce amazing creations at the end. My nightlight was sharing our artworks as a group at the end and celebrating each other’s works. It was really special and a very rewarding end to a great sessions. We took some wine and they put a beautiful cheese board on. Great reggae tunes playing as the rain fell outside and some beautiful people to chat to during the session. 11/10. Will be back again for sure and it’s ignited a real interest in the art form. I’ll never look at a magazine or book the same way - and I think that’s a very good thing. Get outside your comfort zone and challenge your perspectives. You won’t be disappointed. Thanks Max and Zoe

Rayssa Sasse Mar 2022


The workshop was great! We definitely had lots of guidance and plenty of room to be creative and test different ways of collage and techniques. The group was lovely and we created unique piece. 10/10 recommend this experience

Sue Neale Mar 2022


I really loved this class and will be back. Great instruction, discussion, materials and company. I highly recommend That Paper Joint.

Heather Thompson Mar 2022


Vibe and environment was great. Really informative and a lot of fun. Good class size. The time flew and I feel inspired to take the ideas further.

Akansha Pandey Mar 2022


It was a very fun workshop! Zoe and Max give you a warm welcome on arrival which sets the tone for next 3 hours. They patiently walk you through the entire process , do cutting with you and are always available to help but give you full creative freedom. The snacks and beverages are a great addition . The best part you get the digital version of all the pieces created in the class and you also get to take all the leftovers scraps with you.

Kiki Havos Mar 2022


This is one of the most enjoyable and unique art experiences in Melbourne! I had so much fun and both Max and Zoe made all of us feel like their studio was our own. We were coached and encouraged to try a range of different collage-making techniques, and were surrounded by inspiration from other participants, the wealth of resources available to us, and both passionate facilitators. The studio felt as if stepping into wonderland and the cheese platter and music was a really wonderful touch. The most relaxing yet productive Friday night I’ve had in a long time. Will definitely be coming back soon. Thanks Max, Zoe and Frankie

Pavit Bakshi Mar 2022


Max and Zoe are absolutely wonderful! You feel at home instantaneously at That Paper Joint. I can’t wait to go back to learn and practice some more!

Clancy King Feb 2022


An absolutely fantastic class. Thank you so much to Max, Zoe (and Frankie) for making us feel so welcome and for sharing your knowledge so freely. It was such an inspiring way to spend the afternoon and the perfect start to the week.

Anindita Bansal Feb 2022


This workshop was amazing. As someone with a corporate job, I don't get to use the creative side of my brain very often and I left the workshop feeling energised, intellectually stimulated and just very happy at the amount of fun I had :)

Max & Zoe are amazing at guiding you through the process with a process & helpful suggestions but enable your own personal style to come through as well. Added bonus is that Franky is the cutest pup that comes around for pats and scratches. The vibe of our sunday afternoon session was very relaxed and chill and it was the perfect weekend activity. I will be back

Shea Fernando Feb 2022


Max and Zoe were great!
The shop was cozy and the class was amazing!
All the tools we needed were provided and we went through a few techniques.

Sarah Hartree Feb 2022


Max and Zoe were wonderful and I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop. The space is beautiful and so inspiring and I was taken aback on how many things we had to choose from for collaging. I loved the snacks and teas available, too!

My only feedback would be to set 'micro challenges' at the beginning to get the class used to the different approaches / techniques. It was quite overwhelming to start 'anywhere'. It would have been cool to do a "window" challenge and a "Give something a face" challenge etc.

Emma Costa Feb 2022


Such a wonderful way to spend the afternoon. The vibe at That Paper Joint is spot on - the space is incredible and Max & Zoe are the most amazing hosts. The perfect mix of inspiration, education, creativity and hospitality - even for a complete novice like me! I went alone (and was made to feel very comfortable), but can imagine it also being a super rad thing to do with friends or or for a special event. Will definitely be back, highly recommend x

Aaron Sevier Feb 2022


What a Wonderful way to spend the afternoon! Looking forward to next time. Thank you

That paper joint really lives up to its name and beyond. The hospitality shown by the hosts makes you instantly comfortable to get creative juices flowing. I felt properly supported as a beginner to not only learn new skills but find my own style. The classes are expertly operated by a very well experienced artist and this knowledge is shared eagerly amongst the class. I would not hesitate to return with a bigger crowd to share the amazing experience I am asked away with.

I’ve been to many workshops in my time and I must say this is up there as one of the best.

Max and Zoe are warm, knowledgeable and very encouraging.

The class is structured exceptionally well which allows participants to complete 2 or more pieces in the time available without feeling pressured. We also got to take home a mountain of images to continue making pieces at home.

The gallery/studio space is set up beautifully to inspire creativity but also very practical, it was very easy to work in, generous amount of space for each participant and comfy stools, drinks and a delicious cheese platter.

Max is a hands on teacher who was very intuitive when a participant needed assistance he was very encouraging with gentle guidance.

Both Max and Zoe are also open to new ideas for their class. I asked Max if they would consider having sessions where an alumni of their workshop could pay a fee and come in and spend a couple of hours creating. I would probably be their first sign up. Just wanted to thank Max, Zoe and Lenny for their generosity and you’ll be sing me again soon

Max and Zoe were fantastic hosts and That Paper Joint is a wonderful place to visit & spend a few hours creating. The workshop was really well planned and ran smoothly, with the opportunity to have a lovely snack and have a coffee as we worked. Max was very helpful in explaining how to put images together & gave good feedback too.

Johnny Messum Feb 2022


This is a very special, very rare concept and above all great fun for everyone to start simply and explore quickly how satisfying imagery can be discovered amd created by chance. It is a moment to share with others as well as delve in yourself and lose yourself in the making process for a few hours.

Carlos Padilla Feb 2022


It was a great experience! The time flew by in a Lovely space. Zoe, Frankie and Max are awesome

Definitely going back again!

Jason Cormick-Dockery Feb 2022


Max and Zoe were great hosts. Max took us through collage techniques and spent time with each person. I’m bringing my son next time.

All of the instructors were amazing, great vibes and great class. The teachers help develop your creative vision.

Meg Parry Feb 2022


Max, Zoe and Franky welcomed us warmly into their inspiring studio for a special Valentines evening collage workshop. Max walked us through some handy examples and tips and tricks to execute the art of collage successfully which was great. After pouring ourselves some wines, Zoe brought out a delicious spread of local artisanal cheeses and nibblies. It was an atmospheric, fun and memorable workshop - fell in love with the art of collage on V day! Thank you MZF!

Cayman Deely Feb 2022


Great informative class, perfect balance of everything.
Max, the host/teacher is obviously so very skilled at collaging, and is great at explaining his thoughts.

Harry Ly Feb 2022


Max and Zoe created an amazing experience for us. We were captivated from the get-go and were even more in awe when Max started cutting paper, you can feel the passion he has for his craft! It was a great night for getting lost in the moment — I can definitely say that I walked away feeling inspired and wanting more.

Lor Awwad Feb 2022


Thanks Zoe and Max for a great night! We absolutely loved the workshop, time just flew by. The space was very comfortable and the activities were fun and so well organized, Zoe and Max were amazing and very helpful, we just loved it!

Maddi Skeggs Feb 2022


Such a unique and playful experience. The place is set up so wonderfully and Max and Zoe have thought everything you need right down to the sanitary supplies in the bathroom (it’s appreciated). Just a wholesome experience where we got to let go, be creative and be guided in a safe space. Would definitely do again and can’t wait to share with my friends and colleagues. You should be so proud Max and Zoe and Frankie!

Camila González Feb 2022


Amazing experience, I felt like a child on Christmas. The venue was amazing, beatufil and inspiring as well as all material provided. Zoe and max really know what they doing and all the workshop activities just work perfect together. I just had an amazing time, and would definetly recomen it

Amelia Johnson Feb 2022


Second time doing this class - I love the guidance Max provides, as well as the time and space to just create! My daughter and I did this one together… we barely spoke, but shared such a great experience together :)

Benjamin Kowaluk Feb 2022


This was a the coolest, most fun, wholesome thing to do in brunswick. Max and Zoe were so hospitable, and the Oat milk for coffees was the cherry on top. Max was great with explaining the different types of collage - super interesting and needed to make different types.

Paper Craft and Ink workshop review by Benjamin Kowaluk

Leonie Gusman Feb 2022


Amazing vibe the minute you walk in, paper paradise! Organised session, skilled & passionate teacher, small group which is much appreciated - came away inspired and relaxed.

Ash Thomas Feb 2022


Max and Zoe were just the most warm and welcoming hosts. We attended the pizza night and it was genuinely so much fun. You can tell that Max is so passionate and just loves to share this with everyone and support them in making some sick art. I’m totally coming back with some more mates soon

Clare Ryrie Feb 2022


Zoe and Max were really great facilitators. They spent time with everyone and gave great tips but also left us to do our own thing. Really nice images to work with and really great environment to work in. Enjoyed reviewing everyone's collage at the end of the workshop. I would highly recommend and will be back again!

Jennifer Pitcher Feb 2022


Fabulous evening. Great venue, hosts, collage materials, pizza and vibe. Loved the environmental sustainability ethos present in the way Max and Zoe live and work. I got so many ideas for doing collage, and the books and magazines we had access to were fantastic. Being able to keep all the images we gathered was a bonus. Looking forward to seeing the masterpieces everyone made on the night. Thanks heaps for the best evening!

Abbi Kelly Feb 2022


The books were soooo nice and I was really cool that you could just take out a page. Also the scissor were so sharp and had such a smooth cut. The music was great and just everything was cool.

Jacki Bacon Feb 2022


A delightful afternoon workshop learning collage techniques with very friendly and skilled teachers. Great range of source books and magazines, wonderful gallery of collages for inspiration, and excellent tips and suggestions. Fabulous venue and a delicious afternoon tea. Many thanks!

Georgina Lenten Feb 2022


Such a brilliant and beautiful space, max and Zoe are lovely, bursting with passion and make you feel so at home
Can't reccomend this enough, everything you need is provided, the layout of the workshop guides you along perfectly anybody would enjoy paying that paper joint a visit!

Alice Waterston Feb 2022


Amazing class - the three hours absolutely flew by and learnt so many cool techniques! Will definitely be back

Rachel Kenyon Feb 2022


Great value for $ and venue. Amazing materials and cheese platter. Great teachers. Would defo recommend.

Ros Jordan Feb 2022


Good atmosphere
Some lovely works on display
A great idea I don’t like the obligation to review and word count

Derani Carter Jan 2022


It was amazing. So fun being with friends and doing something creative. Max and Zoey were lovely. The space they have created is perfect for getting in touch with your creative side.

Shylicia McKiernan Jan 2022


My sister and I had such an amazing time doing your collage workshop! We really enjoyed the explanation of the different types of collages and the encouragement of just going for it. The team created a beautiful safe space for us to learn, get creative but also get to know the other people who were also doing the workshop. The cheese platter was so yummy and kept our tummies full while we were peak collaging. It was also so exciting to bring home the pages we intended to use but didn’t get the chance too (we already have ideas for our next collages). It was also really appreciated that Max and the team stayed open a little later so we didn’t have to rush through looking at everyone’s scans. Definitely recommend and cannot wait to come back for another workshop

Liz Rizio Jan 2022


The class was fantastic! The workshop was inspiring with all the artwork throughout the space. Max & Zoe are very knowledgeable and super creative! It was an enjoyable way to spend the morning. I would highly recommend the Cut & Paste Collage Workshop and will book another workshop soon! Also would make a great gift idea

Lauran Black Jan 2022


Absolutely loved our collage class today. Max and Zoe super helpful. Great supplies, lots of ideas, great work space, highly recommend and the 3 of us would love to do it all again xxx

Julie Porteous Jan 2022

Georgia Kemp Jan 2022


Had a fabulous afternoon with Max and Zoe, learning about the art of collage. It was so nice to spend time in a creative space, surrounded by a small group of lovely, friendly, creative-minded people as part of the group class. The venue was perfect- bright, inspiring, air-conditioned on a hot day and Covid safe! Max had some excellent tips to take home and I’ve learnt a few new techniques to try. I’ll be doing this class again if I can - I highly recommend it!
Max and Zoe really took the time to make sure everyone got value from the class and walked away with a finished piece (or multiple pieces). It’s really good value for money and a brilliant way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

Susan McCarthy Jan 2022


A fantastic way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Beautiful, creative and inspiring studio space. Max and Zoe were great teachers, I learnt many different collage techniques and feel inspired to do more collage - lovely food and drinks provided too. Will definitely be back with friends.

Claudio Junior Jan 2022


Great place and amazing experience! I really had so much fun in this class! Thanks

Karen Watts Jan 2022


This class was fantastic Max and Zoe are amazing superb teaching and nurturing from both equally as fun as informative. Great space for creating so much inspiration! I will be back again as will my daughter who loved it as much as me Thanks Max and Zoe xx

Alice Maier Jan 2022


Loved the Class and Max gave the perfect amount of feedback. If I had known there was an option to stay later to keep working that would have been useful information, and then I could have planned my day to ensure I could stay longer.

I think I would also have felt more comfortable if it was encouraged for all attendees to keep masks on when not eating or drinking. It's no fun I know:(

Leanne Daquino Jan 2022


A fabulous way to spend my time. Max and Zoe were so welcoming and the space is fascinating. I could just sit and look at the amazing decor and art work all day. Max is a great teacher, very gentle and helpful. I learnt a great deal about the art of collage and can’t wait to get stuck into it at home. Thank you Max and Zoe. I’ll be back

Fran Macdonald Jan 2022


What a great night! I learned a lot about collage, had fun and took away some really nice artwork. Max and Zoe are very welcoming and generous - they have a lovely space, but provide much more. They share their talent, experience and bountiful materials for everyone to try collage and then scan it electronically so you can take it all home. On top of that, they provide nibblies. Can't recommend this experience enough.

Matilda Devere Jan 2022


We absolutely loved our workshop at The Paper Joint Fantastic class set up meant we were engaged, creative and had a blast. The time just flew! Max and Zoe were wonderful hosts and we can’t wait to come back again soon!

Anna Davern Jan 2022


Thanks again Max and Zoe! It was even better the second time around. I just wish the class was longer!

Erica Sanders Jan 2022


Max was a great teacher. He had in depth knowledge about collage techniques and was generous in sharing f his ideas.
The workshop area was spacious and really well equipped.
I enjoyed it so much I’ll probably do it again.

Janet Beer Jan 2022


Very relaxed atmosphere and really enjoyed the day. Max and Zoe ate lovely and very helpful. Would definitely recommend to anyone

Giorgia Bellini Jan 2022


Definitely good value for money! Priceless experience, I had so much fun but also I learnt some new techniques in the collage craft. The venue is perfect! Just a cool experience with cool peop!

Liam Shearwood-Boyd Jan 2022


Great class taught by Max and Zoe. Their passion for the space and collaging as an art form was infectious and their instructions/demonstrations were clear and concise, allowing for maximum creation time. And how time flew! Everyone was really in the flow state today.

Can't recommend this class enough for anyone with any semblance or interest in art or creative expression.

Amanda Lorch Jan 2022


Such a great experience. Max, Zoe and Frankie were very welcoming. The space is well thought out and user friendly. Such a fun class, highly recommended!

Lisa-Natalia Lepore Jan 2022


My collage workshop at that paper joint was very enjoyable! The venue is quirky and functional, Zoe & Max are a talented and helpful team and dog Frankie is an added bonus. A great place to get creative in.
Thanks. See you soon!

Keishini Seneviratne Jan 2022


Such a great experience to try with anyone, the class group was a small size and Max, Zoe & Franky made everyone feel welcome. Max was amazing and got our creative juices flowing and comfortable with collage. We came out on the other side knowing we'd be back again!

Nora Love Jan 2022


Only area of improvement I would suggest is better air-conditioning (but it was an untipically hot day). Very generous with providing us with extra time

Carly Wills Jan 2022


I made a very last minute decision to attend this class and I’m so glad I did. Our workshop was lead by Max, an accomplished artist, who offered great one-on-one support and ideas, his partner Zoe, incredibly hospitable and helpful, divine being and scanner extraordinaire and their cute pooch Frankie. The venue is bright, open and welcoming, easy to find and is a book and paper lovers heaven. All materials were provided, as well as refreshments, making this class excellent value for money. I learned some great techniques and tips from Max and I thoroughly enjoyed the searching, collating, cutting and arranging of paper pieces to create a unique work of art. I especially loved that we were able to view the incredible creations of the other workshop participants. Very inspiring and I highly recommend. Thank you Max and Zoe!

Erin Sutherland Jan 2022


Amazing! I found the activity itself completely engrossing and the place is so crazy/fun/beautiful, you start to feel creative straight away. Teacher was really helpful and constructive, and gave excellent info (I really felt like I learned a lot and would do different things next time too). The materials are incredible- could have spent ages just poring through the vintage magazines and illustrated books! Great to go alone or with friends- the vibe is very friendly and banter encouraged :) will be coming back for sure

Emilie Walsh Jan 2022


What a great workshop! I took a collage class on the last day of 2021 and what a fun & enriching way to finish the year!
The teachers are friendly, engaging and the class very well thought through. The venue is such a cool workshop place, full of inspiring collage and colourful knick-knacks, while also being comfortable and welcoming. I achieve two collages and got a digital version of them too, and I left with more cuts to finish another two pieces at home. The snacks and Frankie the cute doggo are a great addition :)
I am going to attend it again with some friends soon!

Ben Gong Dec 2021


The workshop is absolutely the cradle of inspiration. It brings out the ideas from varieties of aspects. Enhancing not only the aesthetic perspective but also enlightening the way we observe the objects around our daily lives. If you'd like to keep your Muses entertained, "that paper joint" is the new Mount Parnassus for you all to come.

Amelia Johnson Dec 2021


Absolutely brilliant! Max and Zoe were a great team - clear instructions, suggestions and individual support. The place was set up well with lots of visual delights! I’ve left feeling like I have a few more tools in my kit for future projects, but also a sense of joy and calm after spending time at That Paper Joint ❤️

Crosbie Vinten Dec 2021


I had such a blast at the workshop last night! Going in I had no idea what to expect but you created a really open, relaxed and positive working space and it was such a fun (and unexpected) way to spend Christmas Eve! Will definitely come again and recommend to others :)

Fiza Zali Dec 2021


I got this as a Christmas present for a friend and we did it together. I’ve never thought of myself as a creative or artistic person, but That Paper Joint created such a safe and comfortable space for everyone to just feel free to have fun and create. Highly recommended and we’re already making plans to do another session!

Tahlia Shafar Dec 2021


Such a special and inspiring experience. You step into a gorgeous, calm space and without your knowledge time stops. Hours pass as you imagine, create, paste and scan your one of a kind creations. Max and Zoe are a dream team.

Incredibly generous hospitality and such an inviting workshop where everyone and every idea is warmly welcomed. Thank you

Loved it It was such a nice evening. Max and Zoe were great hosts and made sure we were comfortable and at home. I loved that it was a small intimate group so that we actually got time to chat with Max and discuss some of the pieces. Highly recommend and would definitely go again! Loved it

Gerardo Godinez Dec 2021


A very inspiring workshop led by truly passionate people. I attended the Tuesday night session, the energy was great plus the pizza was amazing! Although I had done some collage before, Max really expands any ideas you might have and provides inspiring source material from his amazing collection of vintage books and magazines. Highly reccomended.

Victoria Jacgung Dec 2021


A super fun class! Brought some need ideas and inspiration to me, while reframing how I thought about collage!

Oriana Torcasio Dec 2021


I had the most enjoyable Sunday afternoon at That Paper Joint. Cannot fault this experience -– everything ran seamlessly. 10/10 donuts, the vast drinks selection, the friendly puppy roaming the shop, the encouraging and constructive collaging advice provided by Max, the lovely and down-to-earth Zoe, the endless top-tier materials on offer, the vibe of the studio, the nostalgic paraphernalia decorating the walls and shelves the list goes on! I can't wait to come back in the new year. Thanks TPJ, you've nailed it!

Such a wonderful experience. The atmosphere, guidance and banter a 10/10! Will definitely be going back.

Caya Finlay Dec 2021


had a very enjoyable Sunday afternoon at That Paper Joint as part of the Cut & Paste Collage workshop. Max, Zoe and Franky are very welcoming and provide delicious doughnut treats to keep you going throughout the workshop. The team have everything organised and ready for a fun afternoon, so many fantastic books and magazines to start the collage journey. Max has a great depth of knowledge and supports you throughout the process. The time flew as I sat engrossed in the collage fun. I walked away with two completed collages and lots of great resources to continue at home. An awesome way to spend an afternoon and I would highly recommend this joint to anyone interested.

Jo Ludbrook Dec 2021


I loved every minute of our class as it sped by. Thank you for a mind opening and wonderful afternoon.

Giulia Sipio Dec 2021


Wow what a wholesome evening. Somehow 3 hours went by in a flash and everyone in the room had been gifted the time to zone out and play around in a creative space. Max offered heaps of suggestions and highlighted techniques to think about when collecting and arranging. The cherry on top was Zoe's delicious cheeseboard and comforting chats throughout. Great team. Great space. Would attend again!

Mette Husted Nov 2021


Max and Zoey are great hosts! The venue is a 90's kid's wet dream. Only thing to beat the curated paper materials is, hands down, the cheese platter I have attended 3 collage workshops and would highly recommend this experience to anyone looking for a fun, social, laid-back event. Will definitely be back. :)

Trekessa Austin Nov 2021


Zoe and Max are lovely! It was a good amount of time to have fun & experiment PLUS we got some great artworks at the end.

Saradha Koirala Nov 2021


This was a great class and such lovely people - thank you! It was hard being out and out on my own after so long in lockdown, but I loved being able to do my own thing and interact with others at the same time. Max and Zoe were wonderful hosts and really supportive of me as an absolute beginner collager.

Stella Saputra Nov 2021


The workshop environment is really cosy and provide lots of opportunities to get my creative and imaginative side of my mind working.

Jennifer Fay Nov 2021


Really beautiful space with terrific materials and instruction. The right amount of time plus a well thought out balance between guidance and allowing us all to play and be creative. It’s a super creative and inspiring space.

Amy Scully Nov 2021


So loved hanging out collaging with my friend at That Paper Joint on Saturday! I have a collage pack that was posted to me in Sydney during lockdown so was keen to visit. Max & Zoe were so friendly and gave some great tips during the workshop. Will definitely book another workshop next time in Melbourne - I recommend to go play-so fun! (Coffee & Donuts bonus ) x Amy

Millicent Matthew Nov 2021


Structured just enough. Incredible materials. Perfect balance of helpful and left to your own devices. Space is a divine and luscious creative bubble. The snacks and drinks provided are also fantastic

Millicent Perry Nov 2021


Such a wholesome Sunday afternoon! that paper joint is a beautiful space run by beautiful people.

Caro Roach Nov 2021


Loved attending that paper joint collage workshop. Super welcoming facilitation, beautiful creative space, magnificent work area and equipment. Really fun materials. As a lapsed arts practitioner, I enjoyed reconnecting with the joy of art making and creative play/ curiosity. We booked the session as a best buddy meet up, it was really special to have a shared creative experience with a dear friend. Thanks Max and Zoe!

Sarah Hall Nov 2021


Lovely way to spend a Friday night decompressing from work and doing something creative. Very relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. The space is amazing and the materials available are really eclectic and inspiring. I was surprised how much I was able to create during the workshop. Max gives great guidance and I now feel inspired and confident to do more collage in the future! Thanks Max, Zoe and Franky!

Chris Guy Nov 2021


Class was a lot of fun. Felt very free to do what I wanted and everyone was helpful and encouraging along the way. There was always the right amount of guidance to point me in the right direction while letting my collages take the form I wanted. Never felt pressured to do something specific. The studio was great to spend time in, a lot of inspiration to be drawn from around you, and almost unlimited resources made available

Liz Dalgleish Nov 2021


An all round great night out! Max and Zoe are great hosts, providing all the ingredients needed for a fun and arty experience. I loved immersing myself into your funky space and playing with paper under your expertise. Thanks so much.

Anna Davern Nov 2021


very generous and welcoming hosts. Thanks Max and Zoe.
Liz and I had a great time and learned a few new tricks. We're going to get some friends together and talk to you about a private party!

Emily Piggott Nov 2021


I loved the class. Max and Zoe were fantastic. Really great studio. Price is good. Max is so good at teaching people. I really enjoyed and I will do it again. Excellent thing to do with a friend on a Friday evening.

Peter Shanahan Nov 2021


Great fun and a fantastic way to extend skills or just to have a good time in a calm environment

Rosie Nicholson Nov 2021


Roll up for a fun, relaxing and creative time – the hours disappear as you collect treasures from vintage books and magazines and learn how to craft them into new artworks. Max and Zoe are wonderful hosts, offering great materials and a collaborative set up, plus encouragement, tips, chill tunes and tasty treats throughout. Special shout out also to Frankie, the adorable and affectionate pup who also keeps everyone feeling very welcome. Both me and my daughter (10) had a brilliant time and can't wait to come back.

Cassandra Baker Nov 2021


The hosts were more then amazing. Loved the variety of materials provided. The tips and tricks given to us during the class, were incredibly helpful and allowed me to explore more in depth ideas

Magdalena Ksiezak Nov 2021


The hosts were super welcoming and very friendly. I found the direction really helpful and inspiring and I now have a new found appreciation for collage. Can’t wait to book my next class and bring friends here for a fun night!

Lisa Currie Nov 2021


I had a really nice morning at the collage workshop! Especially coming out of lockdown and not really socialising for months, I appreciated how relaxed and friendly the space felt. I liked how Max kept the instruction open (so there wasn't any pressure to reach a certain point) but he was also active in coming around and giving ideas and thinking out loud on what his process would be. We were offered so many incredible vintage books and magazines too, I could have happily spent the whole workshop just browsing them. The home-y touches were lovely too, like vintage mugs for a coffee and good tunes. And the dog!

Sara Sulava Nov 2021


Such an amazing place to get immersed in collaging! I will definitely be back. Max, Zoe and Franky were a please to hang out with!

Kate Parker Nov 2021


Loved the collage workshop with Zoe & Max. The space is fantastic & such an excellent vibe to the presentation.
Max presented plenty of ways to approach collage, shared loads of fantastic materials, and we were given ample time to experiment and play. Guided input into choices and the discussion of work was super hands on and helpful in thinking about different ways to create.
A great little scanner hack that I can’t wait to try in my classroom as well!
